at Radiator city, we still use the conventional and trusted rod out method to clean our radiators.
First we will inspect and test the radiators to determine the
condition of the radiators. Thereafter the radiators will be stripped. Normally
one sided, the top tank of the radiators get removed. Then the radiators are
tested on a flow bench. This is to determine if the radiators is clogged or
not. We will then rod out the tubes of the radiators to remove all scaling and
blockage in the tubes, so as to improve the water-flow trough the radiators tubes.
The top tanks of the radiators will then be refitted and resolderd to the
radiators. After this we will again pressure test the radiators to see if there
is any leaks. If leaks are found it will be repaired and radiators will be
again pressure tested to ensure that radiators are sound and leak-free . Now we will do an
external high pressure fin flush to remove obstruction and dirt in the radiators
finning. Taking care not to high pressure flush to near to the core, as to
avoid damaging the fins. Fin flushing is done to ensure a proper and even air
flow trough the radiators finning. This is crucial for the radiators to
operate correctly. Clean water-flow
versus clean airflow gives you maximised
cooling capacity. Finn combing is now done to also improve the air
flow and to enhance the appearance of the radiators so as to have it look as
good as new. Hi heat quick dry enamel paint in different colours according to
customers request or make and model of vehicle is used to repaint the
radiators. And there you have it ˵Bobs
We also do radiator flushing. This is only done on
customers request. Radiator flushing is a cheaper alternative but not a very reliable method.
